2018/08/30 – France says it has proposed that members of armed groups in Mali delaying implementation of a 2015 peace agreement should be put on a U.N. sanctions blacklist.France’s deputy U.N. ambassador Anne Gueguen told the Security Council on Thursday that the time for warnings is over and France has submitted the names of individuals – whom she did not identify – to the U.N. Security Council committee set up last year to deal with Mali sanctions.
Gueguen said a new report by the committee’s panel of experts « shed light in incontestable fashion » on some individuals associated with armed groups who are undermining the 2015 peace agreement « through their links with criminal or terrorist activity. »
To date, there are no names on the Mali sanctions blacklist.
